Until just recently, the building Taipei 101 in Taiwan, was the tallest building in the world. When the progressing construction of Burj Dubai Tower is finished during 2008, it will be the world’s tallest building. A simile in the movie clip below is that Burj Dubai is just as high as two Empire Statue Buildings stapled on top of each other

There is no question that Burj Dubai will be the world’s tallest building. There are, however, a pair of world records to beat along the way up; 628,8 and 646,4 meters. The lower height is presented by a tv-tower and the higher height, which a radio tower by Konstantynow in Warsawa, Polen, had before it fell, 1991.

According to the leader of the project of Burj Dubai, the tower will be higher than 700 meters and have a total of 160 floor levels. As a compare, World Trade Center in New York with its height of 417 meters, had 110 floors.
